The staff was very knowledgable and walked me to the beers that I needed along with recommending addition local beers that fit my interests that day.
I thought their single beer pricing strategy was an expensive way to buy, but convenient! If visiting Founders stop here to stock your cellar or fridge.

Stopped in while visiting Grand Rapids because we had heard such good things about the place, and was not disappointed.
The atmosphere is tailored to please true beer, cigar, and wine connoisseurs. It can be a bit cramped when the place is packed (which it was) but that would be my only complaint about the building.
The people working when we visited went above and beyond standards of customer service and really made our trip memorable. They informed us of several places we absolutely needed to stop into while we explored downtown Grand Rapids. Without their recommendations we never would have known Brewery Vivant was an essential stop. The service was fantastic.
The selection ranged from a variety of regional brews (our first taste from Shorts was from here, love them) to craft beers from all over the world. A very nice, wide array of choices.
This is one of those absolute must-finds when in the Grand Rapids area.

I have to tell you the staff there are very knowledgeable!! The selection they offer are pretty darn good. Every Friday is new beer Friday and if you buy a case you get 10% off of your total purchase. I could spend hours in this store pondering on what to purchase. This store gets an A+ in my books. I plan to frequent this store often!!

I've been to Grand Rapids many times, but somehow this little gem has escaped me until now. I noticed the recommendations on BA and checked this place out on a recent trip to GR. Their selection is incredible and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. They have a great selection of local areas brews. If I hadn't already loaded up my car with FFF stuff I picked up earlier on the road trip, I probably would have grabbed more local stuff to bring back with me. I have stores around me that have selections that are nearly as good as Siciliano's, but not nearly as knowledgeable about the beers they carry. Siciliiano's also appeared to have a great selection of home brew supplies, but I didn't go through that area of the store. I appreciated the way they sell everything by the bottle, so I was able to try several different beers that I might not have tried in a full six-pack.

Siciliano's really is the destination for craft beer fans and homebrewers alike in West Michigan. I don't live near the store, but find myself making frequent trips there to pick things up, especially on "New Beer Friday." Absolutely A+ service, and the people working in the shop are all highly knowledgeable on their products, and are always willing to assist. The best selection of craft beer I've been able to find within 100 miles (plus everything can be purchased by the bottle). Really solid selection of homebrew supplies and equipment. There have only been a few instances where Siciliano's didn't have what I needed, and in those cases it was hard to find in the first place, even through a national internet homebrew retailer. Fierce advocates for the local homebrewing community, not to mention generous sponsors of local events and competitions. I can say with confidence that without Siciliano's, there is no way I would be able to enjoy homebrewing and craft beer the way I do now. West Michigan is very lucky to have a resource like this in its backyard.

Siciliano's Market is a wonderful place to find your favorite beers, spirits or wines. If you are a Home Brewer you can get your supplies here. I highly recommend stopping by here. The staff are friendly and helpful. If you are looking for something that is hard to find they probably have it or they can get it for you. I try to frequent Siciliano's weekly. They always have new Brews coming in every week. They also carry cigars and tobaccos which gives it an inviting aroma when walking into the store.

Sicilianos is by far the best "beer" store I've ever frequented.
The selection is immense and will please beer, cigar, coffee, tea, and homebrew aficionados.
As for beer, they have a reliable selection from anywhere in the globe. The store is essentially divided into sections by regions. For instance, all belgians/international beers have their own shelf. There is also sections for Michigan and domestic beers.
Outside of beer, the store has quite a bit of spirits and liquors. There is also a section dedicated to exotic teas and coffee. Sicilianos also reps a full assortment of homebrew equipment/ingredients, home-fermented wine section, and another section I like to call DIY. This is stuff like make your own almond milk or grow your own mushrooms or cheese.
As for beer, it's easily best in Grand Rapids and West Michigan. Sicilianos consistently stocks rare and mainstay beers and their availability is second to none. The staff is incredibly knowledgable in making the right recommendations to seasoned beer drinkers or beginners. One thing that separates this from average liquor stores, Sicilianos marks all their beer in singles. While you can buy four/six packs, it's more targeted toward maker your six pack.
Protip for Sicilianos: First, they stock new beers on Thursday afternoon and run a blog on Friday called "New Beer Friday." Your best chance for finding whales and rarities is on Thursday afternoon.

Next stop on our round trip Michigan trip. Also recommended by many BA's
Small parking lot on a slightly busy road. Fair sized store selling beer, spirits, cigars and home brew supplies. Friendly staff, we were asked by several employees if we needed help and smiled and re-assured us to ask for anything if needed. Selection was very good, but was a little sad to see very little Shorts beers. Picked up a case (gotta get the 10% discount) and left happy. Most of the beers I bought were fresh except the 2 Jolly Pumpkin beers (Weizen Bam and E.S. Bam) both were a year old (still excellent btw)
Will definitely return.

One of the many reason to visit Grand Rapids. A great bottle selection in a clean and well organized store. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and pointed out some stuff that had recently come in. The 10% discount on purchases over a case was a nice surprise too.
Picked up some great local stuff form Founders, Bells and New Holland as well as a few Epic bottles that apparently were new to Michigan.
My only complaint was that their Short's selection was very limited. Aside from that, this place was great and I will definitely return on my next trip to Grand Rapids.

The atmosphere here is just great. There are beer making and wine making supplied in the front, and then you make your way to the back where there are loads of great beers and wines.
The quality here is great: a fine showing of wine and beer making supplies. Their staff seems to know everything.
The service is simply wonderful. Any questions I've had, either in terms of self brewing or beer drinking have been answered. Never have the employees seems in a bad mood and I always felt comfortable speaking with them.
The selection is also great. Many different beer choices: it would be difficult to exhaust them all.
The value is also on the money (pun intended!). Many of the single brews will run you like a dollar and a half which is great. Many of the more select beers are not terrible expensive and are right where they should be. An overall wonderful place.
